As our veterans battle, so do their loved ones. Families are left to mourn when they have lost their soldier in battle. While the rest of the world simply carries on, that wife, husband, mother, or child, is handed a folded flag, in honor of their loved one’s service. Most of us will be fortunate enough to never know that pain of sacrifice. Often times, family members left behind after losing their loved one are simply forgotten because, for everyone else, life goes on. They truly sacrificed for our freedom also, supporting the Armed Forces as their spouse, child, mother, or father was called to serve.

A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”
~Joseph Campbell

At Home for Freedom, we believe in respecting our beloved veterans whose lives have been lost. We can honor those vets by taking great care of their gravesites. A simple act of generosity like this, can mean the world to the loved ones left behind.
